From being raised in a family of ceramic artists to immersing herself in mastering her craft daily,
Nina Bosch’s perceptiveness of the ceramic flows through her heritage and every jewellery piece our studio creates.
By building on the Bosch ceramic tradition, we draw inspiration from nature to explore the intersection of geometric and organic shapes.
This creative process ultimately lives in the world as fine porcelain jewellery.
Based in Villiersdorp, South Africa — on a blueberry farm — the Nina Bosch studio incorporates various materials, including
glazes, pigments, 18 karat gold lustre, and sterling silver finishes, to elevate porcelain into wearable art.
Our jewellery items undergo four firing processes:
Firstly 850℃ (bisque firing), then after the pieces are sanded down and are fired to 1200℃ (hard firing).
Once the porcelain is hard, it is fired to 1100℃ (glaze firing); whereafter the jewellery is hand-painted with 18 karat gold lustre,
fired to 740℃, and assembled with sterling silver. This intricate firing process leads to colour variations, shape imperfections, different finished effects, and individuality —
a value and detail inscribed in every Nina Bosch statement jewellery piece handmade with care.
